Opening with sparse instrumentation before expanding into a short, sharp alternative rock appetiser, ‘Coming Down Slow’ is the new single from excellent Scottish songwriter Rachel Alice Johnson. Sensual and dramatic, the track is yet another fine example of what this rising artist is capable of.

Using only simple drum rhythms, acoustic guitar, vocal and a splash of distortion, this track offers a quality not seen in most of the music you’ll be hearing every day on the radio. It’s because of songs and releases of this quality that it’s been a big year for Rachel Alice Johnson, getting support from press and radio all over her native Scotland and beyond.

Fingers crossed next year will be even bigger, in the meantime ‘Coming Down Slow’ is out November 8th.
